Somebody on the list not too long ago was creating a GEDCOM from a database
.. maybe that person could help you.

Other than that, I can only thing of a merge program but that means you
would have to design the GEDCOM then determine how to merge it ... ugh!

: Hi Heinz,
: I'd convert it into GEDCOM and import that. Alternatively, you could get a
: copy of foxpro and spend a few weeks/months writing a utility to load all
: the tables required by TMG (and maitain all the correct pointers etc etc)

: Hi,
:
: Can anyone point me in the direction of a useful app? I've recently
acquired
: a copy of TMG and I'm looking to import data in from a flatfile database.
I
: know I could spend a while converting the data into gedcom format and then
: import it but I have the feeling I'd be re-inventing the wheel. Someone,
: somewhere must have been through this before. I know many list members
have
: been through the 'experience' of importing other formats, has anyone
trodden
: this particular path before?
